'arry is still of the opinion that a top four slot is a possibility.
It must be me, but (IMHO) our performances belie our position.
He may be right, if we keep riding our luck and getting results against the run of play, but on a couple of the recent performances, I wouldn't put us in the top 6, let alone 4.
OK, you can quote missing players, but as said on many occassions - the modern game is a squad game - so we must have a squad capable of the top 4 to achieve it. I don't think we're that far off, we just seem to lack ideas (after the hoof it Crouch approach) - and playing Keane as a Modric replacement just don't work.
I though Hudd would step up to the plate and show what he can do - but even after a few consecutive games, he's still not grabbing hold of games like he should.
Realistically, where do you lot think we'll end up? Do you go along with this top four bit?
PS as for Daffy, did anyone else think that he appeared to intentionally leave his foot in with Craig Gordon? I know he's not my favourite, but at times he shows a really nasty streak as well.

not sure about any of those predictions, for me really depends on who plays at center half, if we can have a settled back four for many/all of those games then we have a decent chance to pick up a good tally of points,if and I say if we are perceived to be pushing for the top four , these are games we shouldn't fear really ..saying that ...this season has seen some strange results go for teams outside the big four ...so very difficult to predict ..I'd take 9 points from those games...if we stay unbeaten during this run of games that'd be great for team morale...considering the lads to come back into the fold .....COYS

Perhaps and Why not?
Personally i believe unless one of the "traditional" top four capitulate then it will stay the same this season.
Seems Lpool are doing just that but its EARLY days yet.
Arsenal were f*cked this time last year and then went on a huge unbeaten run and achieved their usual place in the TOP four.
IF one of the "BIG boys" fall and a position is available for a new contender then Man City look the most likely to fill it, if only because they have spent so much dosh, but for now Spurs have scored MORE than the CITY pretenders (let more in though) and are above them.
Adebayor is back for City and a LOT of what City achieve (or not) will depend on him.
Dont write off Villa and same goes for Everton.
I prefer the "steel" in those teams to that of BOTH Spurs and City even after there arguably poor starts.
Injuries will be telling and you are already suffering.
4th IS achievable, but i still would back the "traditional BIG boys" to maintain the equilibrium.
I'm NOT knocking you lot before it starts.
I would LOVE to see 3 London clubs in the Top Four and therefore the CL.

im pretty sure top 2 will be between utd & chelsea.then bit of a gap to arsenal at 3rd. then another gap to 4th.
if liverpool get torres & gerrard fit & play more like they can then i think it will be liverpool 4th.
spurs,everton,villa & city in any order nxt 4 with maybe sunderland breaking into the 2nd group of 4.
hopefully liverpool will continue as they are & then we got as much chance of any of the others to get 4th.
unless city buy some better players in jan then i dont think they can finish top 4.
old fan i like your predicitons, hope u are right.
im going to say 2 wins, 2 defeats & 2 draws.
wigan (h) 3-1 win
villa (a) 2-1 lose
everton (a) 0-0 draw
wolves (h) 2-0 win
man c (h) 2-2 draw
blkburn (a) 2-1 lose

Honestly i do not give Essex any thought or anyone else for that matter, more important things in life to worry about.

I just tried to look at each of the next 6 games and decide win/lose/draw - can't do it! As Rambro said - we could win 'em all or lose any one of them. It all depends on which team shows up. There is no doubt that we are capable of not losing every game, and 12 points or even more are a possibility - and we could end up with 6 - the joys of supporting the Lillywhites!
And it's nice to be able to agree with SB on something - quit playing Keane on the left! Play Kranjar, he is way better, knows what he is doing, and makes us more of a complete team. If Keane isn't good enough to play up front (and I do not think he is), sit him on the bench - the only reason he is starting is because 'arry made the mistake of making him captain when he came back from Liverpool.
So -optimistically I'll go for either 8, 10, 11, 13, or 14 points (how's that for being pretty wishy washy!) - I just have trouble calling for a Spurs loss. I've gotta believe we win our home games, we've drawn a lot of games at Everton lately, same as at Blackburn.
If I gotta call a number - I'll go with 11!
Wigan (H)..............3 points
Villa (A).................0 points or 3 points - tough to call
Everton (A)............1 points
Wolves (H)............3 points
Man C (H).............3 points or 0 points - tough to call
Blackburn (A)........1 point

Yes it's good to see you back Sfer - the way your missus looks, it's no wonder you spend so much time in hospital - you must be exhausted you poor man!!
Re: the comments about injuries etc. - the good news is that we received a lot of our injuries relatively early in the season ... hopefully this means we'll have the players back and firing on all cylinders for the run into the finish.
As always, after supporting the lads for what will be 50 years next year, I will ever be the optimist!
